    Dr. Sandhya Kharbanda is a specialist in pediatric blood disorders and stem cell transplantation, and the medical director of the pediatric blood and marrow transplant program at UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital San Francisco.

    Having a special interest in stem cell transplantation for children with inherited metabolic disorders, Kharbanda aims to provide state-of-the-art care while improving both short- and long-term outcomes for these patients. She works with a multidisciplinary team to care for children who need a stem cell transplant due to leukodystrophies (genetic disorders affecting white tissues of the central nervous system), mucopolysaccharidoses, and other lysosomal storage disorders (genetic diseases in which a protein deficiency leads to toxic chemicals accumulating in cells). She is also interested in in inherited disorders of red blood cells, including thalassemia and sickle cell disease, and leads UCSF studies that evaluate new therapies for these conditions.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication.
